Can a Hair Transplant Restore Original Hair Fullness?

July 5th, 2005

Q: Can you get your original density back with a hair transplant?

A: Although the cosmetic benefit can be dramatic, a hair transplant only “moves” rather than creates new hair. In surgical hair restoration, a limited amount of hair from the donor area is transplanted to a much larger area in the front and top of the scalp, so that we can never reach the original density.

Achieving a cosmetically appropriate density in the front part of the scalp (which is around 1/3 to 1/2 of the original) generally takes two sessions and is the goal of most hair restoration surgery. Lower densities are used towards the back of the scalp.
